    I have been fortunate enough to read PIB before anyone else, so Im not gonna spoil it for anyone. Rae is a brilliant writer, her words like poetry , she brings culture and rock together. The story is very well put together. I adore the characters. You might think things pradictable in some books, not this one.

    The format is gorgeous as is everything about Pretty In Black. One thing I did not like though, is I hate the sespense on waiting what will happen in the next book , I mean how can you lea

    Pretty in Black got me hooked from the very moment I saw the cover and now, after finishing it in a single day, I can add that, in my opinion, the cover reflects the main character’s personality. That’s exactly how I picture Ellie’s life at the beginning.

    Getting to know Ellie was hard: such a troubled soul with a horrible past. Her sister was murdered a year ago in their house. Nobody knew by whom or why and this somehow

    Pretty in Black got me hooked from the very moment I saw the cover and now, after finishing it in a single day, I can add that, in my opinion, the cover reflects the main character’s personality. That’s exactly how I picture Ellie’s life at the beginning.

    Getting to know Ellie was hard: such a troubled soul with a horrible past. Her sister was murdered a year ago in their house. Nobody knew by whom or why and this somehow made the situation worse. Then her parents divorced soon after: her father left town for work and her mother married Nick, a violent man with half her age. Just like that, Ellie went from having a nice, loving home, to living in a trailer park with an alcoholic mother and an abusing stepfather.

    We meet Ellie in a cemetery – a place where she spends a lot of time imagining her perfect death – on the verge of suicide. …And then ..he’s there.

    “I thought he was the death angel here to collect me. He was too gorgeous to be human. He had long black hair, brooding eyes, and the richest ruby lips I’d ever seen.”

    Having many secrets of his own, Marcus returned from the dead to save her. He’s also determined to “unbury her heart” and make her love him the way he loves her. But in order to be together forever….he has to kill her first…sort of.

    One of the many things I love about Marcus is the way he’s expressing his feelings. He’s unlike any other male hero I’ve read about…I’m sure you’ve read a lot of young adult books in which “he” meets “her”, they try to stay away from each other, then finally, after 150 pages they finally realize they are soul-mates. Well…Marcus puts all his feelings out there from the beginning, and they only grow stronger as the story develops. Ellie is the one who’s a little bit astonished in the beginning, maybe a little skeptic.

    “”What are we?”

    He looked at me with passion in his eyes. “Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m in love.” His face was serious, but his eyes smiled.

    My breath caught.

    […]I wanted to tell him I loved him, too, but it was lodged in my throat and wouldn’t come out in words. He smirked. “You’re not required to say anything, you know. But, if you feel the same, then just take my hand.” He turned his right palm up, and placed it near my left one. One heart beat. Two heart beats. Three heart beats.

    […]When he went to move his hand away, I stopped him by taking it into mine and entwining my fingers with his.”

    Ellie discovers in Marcus a savior, a soul-mate, a person worth dying for. She’ll be ready to sacrifice everything to be together. Their love story made me cry sometimes, that’s how amazing it is! The book is written from Ellie’s Point of view, but we get some of Mark’s too.

    Pretty in Black is such a fast paced, amazing story that you won’t put it down from the beginning to the end. The only thing I wish for right now is a sequel.

    Happy Reading!

    I'll admit, when I first started this book it had a real "Buffy" feel to it. With the girl being an ex-cheerleader who'd was now facing some dark times in her life due to a family crisis, and then ending up being the chosen one and proving it by catching the knife being thrown at her head. And then especially when I found that her "mentor's" name was Giles. Crazy...

    BUT...I will tell you, as I continued to read I fell into this story and found that it was nothing like Buffy and it certainly shine

    BUT...I will tell you, as I continued to read I fell into this story and found that it was nothing like Buffy and it certainly shined in it's own uniqueness.

    Marcus Marble is a character that I HAVE to know. Hachton's unique take on a new breed of supernatural had me reading this book in one evening. I simply couldn't put it down. It was quick paced and had me engrossed the entire time.

    The writing was haunting and I loved it. I can't wait for book two-Black Satin.

    Hm.

    Im not even going to rate it. Its below 0 stars, really.

    Ive read a lot of bad books that Ive shelved as "worst books ever" but neither of them was worst than this one.

    No words to describe it.

    If this book is a parody to Twilight by S. Meyer, than I guess its somewhat okay. If its not a parody ... we have a big problem.

    Is this a twilight comedy? Like a parody????? I dnfed this like 8% in. Its not even worth 1 star.

    One one the worst I have ever experienced.

    "That was it, he’d said enough. I was definitely leaving for good this time. I leapt up. “You can take all your cheap flattery, and go use it on someone else because it’s not working on me. You think you can just follow me around and say lines of bullshit to get me to kiss you? I don’t think so. I don’t even know who you are, and right now I don’t want

All I know is that you’ve got five seconds to get lost before I get extremely angry and kick your ass.”

     Some of the worst lines I have ever read. Its cringe worthy. I will just laugh it off and pretend it did not happen
